My boyfriend and I are a little obsessed with classic cocktails. He has been on a quest to perfect his Old Fashioned recipe (he has to make it just like Don Draper). Much to my surprise, I have actually started to enjoy a Crown Royal Old Fashioned… but it’s not exactly a girly drink. Enter the Champagne Cocktail. It is very similar to an Old Fashioned, but easier and much more feminine, and I am one of those two things (you better have said feminine). For special occasions you can break out the fancy champagne, but for a regular evening, sparkling wine will do the trick and will save a ton of money….
1 Sugar Cube
Dash of Angostura Bitters
Dash of Orange Bitters (optional, but I like the added depth of flavor)
Champagne (or good sparkling wine)
Place sugar cube in glass (I love a coupe, but a flute will work as well). Saturate with bitters. Top with Champagne. Enjoy in a marabou robe and slippers (robe an slippers optional, but encouraged)
Due to some computer issues, as well as the Holidays, I won’t be posting the rest of this week, but be sure to join me back on Monday for the start of a full week of posts! I hope all you Starlets have a Safe and Fabulous New Years!
